I'm kind of pulling at my last threads with this problem now, hoping someone here can help me out.
Pretty much since I made my PC in March (2007) it has had a problem of sporadic restarts. I had no idea what the cause could be and they weren't happening at any particular moment or while using any particular program.
I decided to send Microsoft an error report on the reboot and I got this page http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=293078 detailing a "STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER " error. It lists the resolution as "To resolve this issue, obtain and install the most current driver for your video adapter, or replace your video card."
Now, I've uninstalled my video drivers, updated to the latest ones and the problem still exists. I bought a new hard drive about 2 months ago and it still happens. So at this point I'm seeing the only option as replacing my video card.
So does anyone have any experience with this error and know a way to fix it or is it 100% a hardware fault with the card itself?
As I say, I'm pulling at my last strings on this one as the problem is becoming increasingly frequent.
Thanks a lot for any help offered!

Temperatures are all good so most likely not an overheating issue.
